UPDATED: Political Tribes & The Donald Trump Jr. Contretemps

Conservatism, Democrats, Donald Trump, Individualism Vs. Collectivism, Republicans, Russia

I checked out social media before dipping the proverbial toe in the water, this morning. The Right—libertarian, conservative, Republican—is behind Trump, no matter. The Left is against him, no matter what. Tribalists all.

The reaction to Donald Trump Jr. contretemps epitomizes tribalism, if you ask me; but if you’re a tribalist, you won’t ask me.

The silver lining? Maybe we’ll finally be rid of Jared Kushner. Wife Ivanka follows him back to New York, in short order.

Fin.

AND FAT CHANCE.

The Story is Here. If you’re a member of Tribe I, you think it’s a non-story. If you’re a member of Tribe II; you’re into it. It’s your smoking gun.

UPDATE: But there is a truth here, beyond the two tribes’ positions. And the “What about when the Democrats did this or that” won’t cut it as an argument.

The Great Gottfried On Mark Levin, ‘Republican Journalist’

Conservatism, Donald Trump, Neoconservatism, Old Right, Republicans, War

Like his work or not (I love it); in Dr. Paul Gottfried you have a deep, analytical mind. This is one of the reasons “conservatism, Inc.” dislikes Gottfried so. He’s not mediocre.

The feelings are mutual.

An ode to broadcaster Mark Levin, written by David Limbaugh (“Mark Levin’s ‘Rediscovering Americanism'”), elicited this reaction from Gottfried:

I find this stuff nauseating. It’s like we’re dealing with a deep philosophical mind in Levin, a modern Aristotle or Kant. I don’t dislike his political comments but Levin is a Republican journalist–and very little else.

Totally (as Meghan McCain would say).

Didn’t Mark Levin hate Trump when we Deplorables were for him? Now Levin supports the president for reasons we advanced two years ago.

In this soliloquy against Progressivism, on Hannity, Levin “forgot” to mention that progressives believe in Abe Lincoln, The Greatest Centralizer of all times, and SO DOES HE.

The other day, the Drudge news website was shilling for Levin and another broadcaster, Eric Bolling. Both have published new books. And that’s not Fake News?

Do yourself a favor and read all things Gottfried (his latest is “Revisions and Dissents: Essays”).

TWEETS RELATED TO CONSERVATISM ICK:


All wars when waged by a Republican are great.


No criticism allowed of the above.


I supported Trump but why the hell would that stop an honest writer from exposing his follies? A ditto-head could tell you.


Hypocrites all.


Killing while GOP.

LOSING PR Battle: Republicans Still Groveling Following Assassination Attempt

Conservatism, Ethics, Left-Liberalism, Republicans

Republicans continue to collaborate in the “Problem Solvers Caucus,” following the ATTEMPTED MURDER OF REPUBLICANS, last week, on a baseball field in Alexandria. Well of course.

What deeply stupid losers. Moreover, by not standing their ground, Republicans are betraying principles for popularity.

Fear not, founders Republican Tom Reed (NY-23) and Democrat Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). You’ll be invited to all the good parties; you’ll get book deals (to write sub-intelligent drivel about so-called non-partisanship); and you’ll be interviewed by the press popinjays.

UPDATE III (6/26): Republicans STILL Stupidly Stoic After Attempted Murder By Left

Conservatism, Democrats, Donald Trump, GUNS, Morality

Congressmen and their staff were shot at “as they were practicing for tomorrow’s annual charity baseball game. Congressman Steve Scalise, a member of House leadership, was shot and badly wounded.” Which prompted President Trump to go into Democrat-appeasing moral relativism mode. Hear Trump:

We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country.
We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good.
Please take a moment today to cherish those you love, and always remember those who serve and keep us safe. God bless them all, God bless you, and God Bless America.

Or was this Ivanka the president was channeling? Moral clarity was needed. But any moral clarity displayed by the president during the campaign has evaporated, in favor of obsequious pandering. Not to mention breaking of promises: Libertarian Gabb Sean says that “Ever since Trumps was elected, it’s been a matter of what promises he’ll break this week.”

All in all, Democrats are running rings round Trump. If he doesn’t act, Democrats will take the House and Trump will be impeached.

On TV, Conservatives ponderously warned about the perils of “political violence,” all as their ranks are shot at and their spokespersons prevented from speaking. An alt-leftist tries to kill Republicans and this signals to the “stupid party” (M. Stanton Evans’ coinage for Republicans) that it’s time to suck-up to the “evil party” (Democrats). As we speak, the Antifa sick fucks have even stabbed a police horse.

After the Alexandria shooting, politicians consider armed security for THEMSELVES, but not a Wall or a Muslim moratorium for The People.

Bernie Sanders, Huffington Post and other alt-leftist outfits and detritus deny that violence is in their blood; that their brethren encouraged violence. Just the other day did Bernie Sanders roar in his sub-intelligent, foreboding manner that Christian doctrine has to be made to accept that the faithful can be saved through Mohammad, Jehovah, Buddha, etc. Force Christianity to be more inclusive?

Did you know that “more than 12,000 tweets have called for Trump’s assassination since the inauguration”?

The operative word in the Left’s worldview is “force.”

UPDATE I (6/17/017):

Stupid and evil combine forces; Republicans are desperate to retain membership in the DC “smart” set.

Republicans reach out to Democrats in unity after their pals were almost killed. When’s the Republican apology tour?

UPDATE II (6/19/017): Republicans continue to collaborate in the “Problem Solvers Caucus,” following the ATTEMPTED MURDER OF REPUBLICANS, last weeks. Well of course.

What stupid, stupid losers.

Fear not, founders Republican Tom Reed (NY-23) and Democrat Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). You’ll be invited to all the good parties; you’ll get book deals (to write sub-intelligent drivel about so-called non-parhttps://twitter.com/IlanaMercer/status/878471033409359872tisanship); and you’ll be interviewed by press popinjays.
